The Society and the Financial Times are delighted to announce the winning and highly commended entries to their joint School Essay Competition. Students were asked to explain how transport changes might help the world to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement.
The competition sought thoughtful and well-argued responses which referenced appropriate data and articles that focused on either the movement of people or the movement of food, and it was open to all A Level geography students aged 16-18 in the UK. Well done to all those who took part and for working so hard on their entries.
The overall winner is:
Cameron Allan, Royal Grammar School Guildford
In addition, given the range and depth of entries received, the Society and Financial Times have recognised four other essays submitted with highly commended awards:
Michael Bryant, Tendring Technology College
Camilla Handel, St Mary's School Ascot
Lawrence Lee, Bancroft's School, London
Gracie May, Dubai College
The FT awarded a number of places at their conference on Global Food Systems to shortlisted entrants. The winner will also receive a £50 Amazon voucher.
